Lea Michele Says Kate Hudson Came To The Rescue After Cory's Death

Lea Michele has opened up about how co-star Kate Hudson took care of her during the days following the death of her on and off-screen boyfriend Cory Monteith.

It's been almost four months since the 31-year-old 'Glee' star was discovered dead in his hotel room following an overdose, and his partner Lea has been forced to stay strong in the face of the prying media. It hasn't been easy, however, as avoiding reporters was almost impossible in the wake of the incident and so she was forced to ring her trusted friend Kate Hudson who was only too happy to help.

"I called her and said, I don't know where I'm going to go because my house is swarmed [with reporters]" Lea told Elle in an interview for their December issue. "She was like, 'Oh, you're going to stay at my house'. Like it was nothing."

It's not only Lea who Kate was willing to help though, as she opened up her door to everyone else in Lea and Cory's life who wanted to be there for each other. "She let my family stay there, and any of my friends," Lea explained. "She made sure that in the refrigerator were my favorite juices. I'll never really be able to thank her, truly, for what she did for me."

It might've been several months since Cory died in his Vancouver hotel from an overdose of various substances including heroin and alcohol, but Lea insists she is gradually growing stronger despite the pain.

"It's very hard and you have to be very strong to come out of this alive," she admitted. "I think by doing the best for myself, by showing that you don't have to lose yourself, maybe someone else will feel some sort of strength or comfort."
